It was only a matter of time and I'm not surprised at all that someone has been hit and injured by one of these idiots. Dirt bikes, quads in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter.
They burn up, at highway speed, on Hemlock Street, Balsam Avenue, Krumm Road, Old Lakelse Road, Clark Road and churn up the Thornhill Elementary field and others. If it's not the recreational vehicles it's pick-ups and cars laying rubber at all times of the day and night.
Did we talk to the parents?.Yes, many times, but they just show the same disrespect for the neighbourhood as their kids show. I have spoken to the RCMP and told them 'one day someone is going to get hurt or killed. They have visited who I have named and hopefully they continue. Hopefully these young people will get the message before anyone else is injured
